Of course, many do so. Especially in closed source projects we will
never know about.

The concern would be when people would take code and re-incubate it
"at large scale", whatever that means.

But Billies reply below is showing that they improved Hadoop code
(like I hoped) and are willing to contribute back. (If the code grant
is going through at all, it sounds like a little bit more complicated
than usual.) Hadoop can only benefit from that.

Also, I don't share the concerns discussed over at hbase-dev. How
large the overlap between HBase and Accumulo really is can still be
determined in Incubation. Whether or not they will become two
different projects or one is something that would be decided later in
